The Box with Good Timing

I was fortunate to win a drawing at My Field of Dreams. I didn't know what the prize was. I believe it was called a box of goodies. Still, I was thrilled. There's something to be said for timing. I had come home from work on a Tuesday, two weeks ago, and I was feeling rotten. The minute I got in the door I started in panic mode. I took some herbs to try and scare the sickness away and I started doing things around the house at break-neck speed. I tried to catch up with cooking, laundry, and anything else that could be overwhelming when I "crashed" and went to bed. As I expected, I crashed as I called  the family to dinner. They went to the table and I went to bed with a few hundred blankets. I won't bore you with too much info about the flu, but I will tell you that within a few days the mailman delivered a box from FarmGirl.
Here is what I got:
The box that was sent to me with CARE.
A gourd, a loofah, a little doorknob pillow that says "Blessings",
a package of sunflower seeds, pumpkin votive candles, and
handmade towels with a black crow and pumpkin appliquéd
on them, were all in  the box.
There was a bracelet and earrings in my very favorite color
BLUE!
Look at these wonderful wooden candy corns
that she made!
This is a charm on the bracelet. It says" made for an
angel", but I know for sure that the box came from my 
angel while I was sick.

Thank you, FarmGirl!
